Pet Minding

At AllAbouttheHound we offer in-home pet care services:

Home Comforts (Home visits) Pet Care​

It is a commonly accepted fact that animals cope better and are much happier in their own home environment when their pet parents are away.

What you can expect

A plan: We’ll meet you and your dog, discuss your options and put a plan in place.

Flexibility: Choose the options that suit your needs

Accommodating: We may cater to other pets living with your dogs (we are a little smitten with some of our feline friends)

Complimentary: Initial meet and greet, and key collection / drop off

Basic care for your pets while you are away includes:

  • Poop patrol of your property
  • Collection of mail and papers
  • Putting bins out and/or collecting bins from the roadside
  • Lights
  • Watering plants if requested
  • Regular text updates

Service condition: The backyard must be clear of all previous poop deposits before we begin the service.

Home Security

We are very security conscious so will check, double check and triple check that your premises is secure before leaving. We will also do a security check of your windows, external doors and gates to ensure there has been no security breach during your absence and in between our visits.
